OK you can't see it from this picture but trust me the Cornish are on the map (click for a better look), which incidentally can be bought here

Can anybody work google maps or some other map maker?

A map of the UK and Crown protectorates with all the constitutional territories marked on it would be a useful tool for explaining things to the public.

It should include the Six Counties, England, Wales, Scotland, Duchy of Lancaster, Duchy of Cornwall, Isle of Man and Channel Islands.

I've got this one, from "The Story of England" Davis not sure why the Earldom is so big, any suggestions would be most welcome. The only thing that I could ever come up with was most of the Earldoms land in the map is to some extant part of the modern Duchy holdings. Though I've never found any historical references to the Earldom of Cornwall being east of the Tamar. (Sorry had to crop it a lot to upload it.)

Euratlas: http://www.euratlas.net/history/europe/900/index.html

Good maps but all to keen to portray Cornwall's independence as done and dusted by 900. The same could be said for Brittany that wasn't united with France until 1532: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_of_B ... and_France

Equally didn't Cornwall remain outside the realms of Cnut? http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:C ... 4_1035.jpg

Seems like someone with a lot more knowledge than myself on these issues should contact Euratlas.
